Designer Sabyasachi is known for his expensive attires and eloquent designs. Famous celebrities love to endorse this designer’s brand. Most of the common cannot afford his attires. And if a regular person gets to wear his attires, then it surely means that the person has finally arrived at some status. The designer gets a lot of attention on social media for his unique designs.

However, this time, it’s for all the wrong reasons. If you don’t know, he has launched several attires after joining hands with H&M such as printed fishing jackets, wide-legged pants, and flowy floral dresses. Without fail, he also launched some jewelry options as well. Recently, the designer has launched his new collection of sarees.

Well, it did not go well with the audience and now he’s getting a lot of criticism for it. He gave us all a sneak peek of it on Instagram and viewers couldn’t stop bashing. It looks like the Sabyasachi X H&M collection’s first saree came straight out of an average Indian woman’s closet. The brand that always aimed for uniqueness and best designs has ticked off a lot of people with its new collection.

According to Times Of India reports, an Indian-American content creator calls out Sabya’s move on her Instagram story. She wrote, “I’m disappointed in Sabyasachi for collaborating with H&M while his karigars ( who I thought he valued greatly) sit by and watch as their designs are cheaply mass-produced. I hope they’re getting a cut. I hope he knows who is actually being employed in the H&M supply chain for this line.“

Apart from her, many people thought that the saree looks exactly like their grandmother’s saree. Someone said that it feels like it came out straight from his grandma’s cupboard. However, what bugged people more was that this very plain saree costs a whopping ₹9999. After getting to know the price of this saree, people are shocked and are calling him out for ripping off the design from literally every saree shop.

Check out the views of Twitter users in their own words about this grandma’s saree collection:

Then there was the men’s design. A basic kurta that we may have often seen at local stores selling with cotton-soft kurta material.

However, on the 12th of August 2021, the collection is launched on the H&M app as well as the Myntra website. At 12 physical stores across India, the pieces would also be available which include the brand’s outlets at Phoenix Palassio (Lucknow), V R Punjab Mall (Mohali), and Select City Walk (New Delhi).
